Building Automation and Controls have become an essential part of many projects performed by SCM. With propriety systems and highly touted interoperable systems which are so predominately advertised throughout the industry, owners and managers are constantly faced with tough decisions. HVAC, security and lighting are a few of the systems which have become commonplace in the Building Automation arena.
Owners and managers are too often saddled with multiple systems utilizing multiple front end computers and software to control and operate each system or, in many cases, different buildings. This presents numerous problems and inefficiencies, not to mention, the additional training and proficiency issues associated with each of the systems. In many cases, owners do not want to make the substantial investment of upgrading existing building automation systems. Additions to the facility typically contain new control systems which often do not communicate with the existing systems. SCM specializes in establishing the intercommunication our clients desire, but have not been able to achieve.
SCM provides highly technical yet simplified solutions to our clients building automation requirements. Our goal is to provide our clients with a common computer interface which can utilize the information from multiple automation vendors to provide both monitoring and control capabilities. Our staff employs personnel who understand the complex problems of intercommunication between automation systems. SCM has dedicated substantial resources to test and evaluate building automation systems. Our in-house test bench is used to test and substantiate interoperability between systems from multiple vendors. Our test bench utilizes a common computer interface to provide control of LON, BACnet, lighting and security devices.
